GE Lands Big Contract

Should mean good things for our friends and family working hard at River Works.

"$326 million boost to a previously awarded fixed-price contract, exercising an option to purchase 80 F-414-GE-400 engines and modules, as well as 2 spare engines for the U.S. Navy."

  2. Amen to that. I wonder if this will lead to more jobs? I know it will make my uncle more secure in his and that's better then nothing in this economy.

  3. Engineering of course you need advance degrees and the proper education. People from all over work there. Lots even commute from NH and Maine! Non union.
    From what I am told the factory is mostly unskilled and it is "who you know". Friends of friends. Unions.

    they both didn't know anyone. and the kid from Sharon was wanted for the job.
